Diana Kander New York Times Best Selling Author, Innovation Nerd, and Serial Entrepreneur
A New York Times best-selling author and innovation consultant, Diana Kander has spent her career challenging assumptions and asking big questions—what kind of culture needs to exist in an organization to ensure innovative ideas and practices? How has Snoop Dogg continued to innovate decade after decade to stay relevant to the next generation? What causes established brands to lose relevance with their customers and go out of business? A serial entrepreneur who entered the United States as a refugee at the age of 8, she has launched and sold millions of dollars worth of products and services. Her first book, All In Startup, has been used by over 100 universities in their innovation courses and countless large organizations to help their employees think more like entrepreneurs.
